Strange time.  High tax states going for broke.
Liberals always double down when they are wrong.

If that doesn't work, they double down again.

Dem lawmakers to soak New Jersey businesses and homeowners as they brace for new tax … ON RAIN
February 11, 2019 | Frieda Powers | Print Article


New Jersey residents and business owners are bracing for an imminent new tax on something they are powerless to control.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy is poised to sign a new bill approved by the New Jersey Senate and Assembly that will be taxing…the rain.

The new legislation, inspired by former President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency, allows the state’s 565 municipalities to set up their own public stormwater utilities which would build and manage sewer systems, according to WLNY-TV.

Deceptive headline.  They are not taxing rain.

But if you want to pour concrete all over the place and don't include any retention pond or the like, making the drainage problem, expected to get charged for the additional load you put on the city drainage.

Snow is just another form of rain. So snow will be taxed along with rain, air, dirt, and sunshine.

Murphy has to find a way to recoup all the money he wasted TREATING the roads every time he thought it might snow.   Taxing rain is just the beginning.

Snow is taxing enough without human intervention.

Shouldn't this issue be addressed in the permitting process?

Take a look at Boise. The midwest is too flat for me. The left coast is out. Northern AZ is probably good. Southern Utah too lonely. I don't know if you are arrogant enough to be a Texan.
Never asked someone where they are from.
If they are from Texas, they'll tell you.
If not, there's no need to embarrass them.

I'd try, but fail.  I was once offered a transfer to Hudson River Valley in NY, and I totally failed to not laugh out loud.

Yes, it should be, and probably now is, addressed in permitting, but in addition to that from what I can gather from the article they're talking about requiring retrofitting of older developments.  That would most likely require the taking of land to build some kind of SMF.  The FDEP was well down the path of trying to require that here, but thankfully Gov Scott put an end to that nonsense.
